newbie (well oldie) at CZQM
« on: December 21, 2018, 09:29:25 PM »
g'day lads  --  Ken Greenwood (ZX) checking in - was very involved with the hobby 10-15 years or so ago and have recently retired from NavCanada and am reenergized to participate in the hobby on both sides of the mic.  A few of you may have encountered me terrorizing you recently as JZA822 in my l'il CRJ

I have the distinction :) of having controlled with 3 different agencies - the CanadianForces as tower at CYAW and tower and RATCON at CYPG; Transport Canada as a CZQM low enroute controller; and NavCanada for the last 12 years or so at HZ TCU.

As an avid flightsim pilot I have over 3500 hours with VATSIM and can remember starting on the old Flight Assignment:ATP series and through all the various MSFS iterations - some of my flights even end with a successful landing!!

Look very much forward to controlling and 'working' with youse all - if I can help with questions or techniques we use in the 'real world' will be quite happy to assist wherever I can

cheers  --  zedex

Hi Ken

We are excited to have you join Moncton FIR! The team is really excited to have you  on board rather than just in your 200!

Talk to you on Teamspeak soon. We will get you assigned an instructor to ensure your scope is set up.

A name from the past... great to see you in the forums Ken!  I've just stumbled upon them myself.

Congrats on your retirement!  Is Michael Oxner still working?

Take care,

Mike Oxner is indeed still working - see him fairly often as we both picked up the bass guitar at about the same time and jam with the lads together now and again
